Strange film - but worth a look!
23 February 1999 | by iwillSee all my reviews

Hysteria is sort of a combination of Heart of Darkness and the old mad doctor type horror films. Patrick McGoohan is wonderful as always as Dr. Langston, a psychiatrist who is trying out a new radical form of therapy on his patients. When another doctor (Michael Moloney) brings a patient of his to the institute, he finds out that it is hard to leave once you are part of the group mind. Fans of fantasy and new age will enjoy this film, as well as the casual viewer...but it is definitely not for all.
